We are 20 miles south of the border from South Sudan. The closest hospital is 75k away.
We are a government approved health center that works collaboratively with traditional midwives, nurse midwives and trains local student midwives.
In Northern Uganda, a woman has a 1/25 lifetime chance of dying during childbirth.
Since 2008, our birth house has never lost a mother.
We have an infant mortality rate of 11/1000, compared to the national average of 62/1000.
An average of 45 women give birth each month at the clinic, and many come weekly for antenatal care.
Hands on, community justice focused Maternal Healthcare equals good outcomes.
Our model addresses the ‘three delays’ to accessing care. Our ‘Mobile Midwives’ program sends midwives into rural villages every week to serve women who cannot reach us by foot, picks women up in labor and drops them off post partum. We are the only clinic in the region that offers emergency transport.
